Présentation de l'éditeur

It is the eve of destruction.

Gaul seethes and bucks more than ever in revolt against the Roman invader, with even Caesar's allies beginning to question their loyalty. A conspiracy of Druids and Kings move the pieces into position in their great game of independence, all led by the powerful Arverni exile Vercingetorix. The lands of the Belgae burn in the vengeful aftermath of a winter that saw countless Romans butchered by the rebel Eburone King: Ambiorix.

As Rome similarly begins to show its cracks and the triumvirate of powerful men that have held together the crumbling Republic move ever further apart, so Fronto returns to the army, once more seeking his command under the great general.

But Caesar has made a vow to men and Gods alike to end the life of Ambiorix, and naught will stand in the way of that vow's completion - not Gaul, nor Roman, nor reason itself. As the world climbs towards the impending cataclysm, Fronto finds himself thrust with a small group of companions into the gloomy and dangerous sacred forest of his enemy in a hunt for the one man who can halt the general's wrath and fulfill Caesar's vow.

can possibly not be more enjoyable than in the present company of our monumental founding figures that are Caesar, Marcus Antonius, Cicero, Crassus... and the widely inflated character of Vercingetorix (but let's leave the French their delusions of grandeur and pride when it comes to"resistance" ).
With this chapter of General Fronto's adventures, the author takes us onto a wild ride through Belgian and Ardueni lands, where the legions have to squelch disorderly revolts and opportunistic raiding invasions, while rises in the shadows the emblematic Celtic figure which will define a so far elusive Gallic nation. brilliant, brilliant, Simon Turney.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Marius' Mules VI: Caesar's Vow by SJA Turney 15 janvier 2014
Par Paul Bennett - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Those of you who have read the previous volumes in this series may not find it hard to believe but I will say it anyway…they just keep getting better. The author left himself a considerable task at the end of book 4…to refresh your memory it is there that the main fictional character, Marcus Falerius Fronto, has a major falling out with his friend and commanding general, Gaius Julius Caesar. A rift so vast that Fronto leaves the army and spends the whole of book 5 dealing with personal issues while Caesar continues his quest without one of his most trusted advisers and tacticians. Getting them back together did not seem possible but Simon is nothing if he isn’t a resourceful writer.

Their reunion, put forward by none other than Marcus Antonious, is not an easy one and that is one reason why this book is such a great read. Nothing is easy…Simon could have had them patch up, shake hands and gone forward right from the beginning of the reunion but that would be too easy and a bit of a boring letdown. I will say no more lest I give away too much. The main plots are, for Caesar, the death of Ambiorix, the Eburone King who was responsible for the destruction of two legions and for Fronto, the return to the fold and command of a legion. Of course, those two aspects of the story are intertwined, converging like two tributaries to the Rhenus and becoming one in the end.

The continued development of the main characters is an ever constant need and has become a strength of the author. I especially enjoyed the progress of some of the main characters such as:
Caesar – much more human/not the above the fray-confident specimen he is often portrayed as…his conversations with Fronto especially are very telling and interesting
Labienus – another example of a differing representation – not a madman bent on outdoing Caesar
Antonius – now, he is larger than life…imagine Richard Burton meets James Purefoy
Fronto – he has been many things in this series and has grown with it…seeing him as commander of a Navy Seal like operation was well done…
On the fringe and just waiting to burst on the scene is that ever popular Gaulish rebel, Vercingetorix…his brief appearances here leaves one with the impression that he could be the most formidable foe yet to take on Caesar and Fronto.
I throw 5 stars at Simon Turney for yet again turning it up a notch. Now get to work on Alesia. :-)
About the author:
I live with my wife, my slightly barmy son and very vocal daughter, and two (close approximations of) dogs in rural North Yorkshire, where my wife and I both grew up, surrounded by friends and family. A born and bred Yorkshireman with a love of country, I cannot envisage spending my life anywhere else, though my anchor is sometimes tested as the wanderlust hits and we travel wherever I can find the breathtaking remains of the classical world. I have a love of travel and history, architecture and writing and those four interact well enough to keep me almost permanently busy.

Since leaving school and University, I have tried a great number of careers, including car sales, insurance, software engineering, computer network management, civil service and even paint ing and decorating sales. I have lived in four counties and travelled as widely as time and budget allowed and find myself, on the cusp of my fortieth year, back where I began and finally doing something I love.

Having written a number of unpublished short stories in my early days, I decided back in 2003 to try and write a full length novel. That was the start of Marius’ Mules. Being a lover of Roman history, I decided to combine my love of writing and my love of classical history. Marius’ Mules was followed two years later by Interregnum, my attempt to create a new fantasy story still with a heavy flavour of Rome. Since then, the success and popularity of both have inflated my head so that I can no longer comfortably fit through doors, and has spawned sequels to each work, with a third in the fantasy series and the sixth Marius’ Mules now complete, as well as a series set in the 15th century Mediterranean.

I maintain another website detailing the Roman sites I visit and photograph, and write a blog about books. Find me on twitter as @sjaturney. I am an almost terminally chatty person. That’s just a due warning if you feel like contacting me (see above.) I am always happy to speak to people and have put together an FAQ gathered together from things I have been asked previously.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Historical Military Adventure at its Best! 8 février 2014
Par Dr. Andrew Latham - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I'm a lifelong reader of historical military adventure - you know, books by the likes of C.S. Forester, Patrick O'Brien, Bernard Cornwell, Jack Hight and Robyn Young - but until about a year ago I hadn't really read much of the Roman sub-genre. And then I stumbled across Si Turney's wonderful book Marius' Mules: The Belgae. To make a long story short, I've been hooked ever since. I now count myself an enthusiast of the works not only of Turney, but of Ben Kane, Conn Iggulden, Anthony Riches, Simon Scarrow, Harry Sidebottom and Robert Fabbri as well. I've read just about everything by these wonderful writers and now consider myself something of a connoisseur (if that's not too strong a word) of the sub-genre.

It's against this background that I read Turney's most recent installment of the Marius' Mules series, Ceasar's Vow. I was not disappointed. This novel has everything I've come to expect from Turney and the other authors mentioned above: attention to detail, historical accuracy, engaging characters, a compelling plot, edge-of-your-seat suspense, authentic dialogue, and truly great battle scenes. This is without doubt Turney's best work to date (though I still have a soft spot for The Belgae) and should be counted among the best of the sub-genre. For those of you who like military historical adventure, and especially those of you who like your historical fiction set in Roman times, and definitely those of you who like the works of Si Turney, this is without a doubt a novel for you. Buy it and read it - like me, you won't be disappointed!

Marius Mules books 1-6
I thoroughly enjoyed every one of the six books in this series. S.J.A Turney is an excellent story teller, he develops good plots, has beautifully crafted subplots, and lots of action. His character development is very good and he is conversant in the history of the Roman Legions, especially their training, equipment, and weapons. He also accurately describes the impact the infusion of foreign volunteers had on the Legion establish, as well had describing what the Gauls and Germans learned from the Legion, including engineering. When I was teaching at San Jose State University, a colleague and I seriously considered putting together a military history program using novels as texts. This six-book series would fill the bill perfectly for a one semester section using that technique. Did I find any drawbacks? A few, but none that are serious enough to warrant comment, being as they are a matter of personal taste rather than serious defects. Some reviewers have complained about grammatical errors and suggested that Mr. Turney either pay closer attention or get a better editor. I saw some grammatical errors, particularly making adjectives agree with plural verbs as in “there’s many” rather than “there are many” of something. The same sort of grammatical errors occur frequently with pronouns, such as “him and me went,” as opposed to “he and I went.” But on closer examination those errors appear to be deliberately made to make the characters’ speech more realistic sounding. It seems that the lower the rank, the greater number of grammatical errors that are made in speech. That technique is not to be denigrated or confused with a lack of grammatical skill. That is simply an author trying to make his characters more believable.
Now, on to book VII

I love military fiction since I come from a family where military service is a tradition. I also am a complete geek when it comes to anything having to do with Rome. This series of books satisfies on both accounts. The characters are believable and well written and the writer actually bothered to learn something about the time period he is writing about. So I have been reading the entire series and enjoying each book. If you are looking for similar, some historical fiction based in Roman times of the late Republic and early Empire with good character development and good plots, this series will deliver. It is not as well done as McCullough's "First Man Of Rome" series but it also focuses on the common soldier which is NOT what Ms. McCullough did since her focus is on the lives of the leading participants of the time period in question.

I enjoyed Peake's efforts here and the only regret I have at the end of each volume is that I have reached the end of the volume.
